An Interview (and Autograph Signing) with Washington Wizards Superstar John Wall

February 1, 2011

Just hours before delivering another signature, stat-sheet-stuffing performance Monday night in a 102-92 loss to the Dallas Mavericks (17 points, 10 assists, four rebounds, one steal), Washington Wizards rookie superstar John Wall was tucked away in the lobby of a posh Dallas hotel leaving his mark in other ways.

Like, indelibly, with the smooth strokes of his Staedtler-clutching right hand . . . on some of the first pieces of Panini Authentic memorabilia (more to come on that) and on stickers slated for past, present and future Panini America basketball card products.

The soft-spoken Wall, a Panini-exclusive spokesman, was gracious, humble, consistent and efficient during the 30-minute signing session, sashaying seamlessly from signing gorgeous 16 by 20-inch photographs to inking more traditional trading card fare.

Check out the following gallery from yesterday’s signing . . . and stay tuned till the end for a brief video interview with Wall, who leads all 2010-11 rookies in assists and is second in scoring.

    Good stuff. Wall has a bright future ahead of him; hopefully he’s surrounded with some solid talent in the near future.

    Can’t wait to hear more about Panini Authentic memorabilia. I’ve been waiting to hear this news since you acquired the NBA license.

    That’s funny Mr. Wall… I collected all those guys too. Still do.

    I like how the young guys mention collecting Pokemon as kids, god I am getting old.
